“Being sad is normal. It's despair that is the enemy. Despair is like a badly sealed window. It allows all manner of things to leak inside. That's what it means to be haunted. To be cursed. It's when something takes root in the soul, the way mold can take root in the walls.”
Madeline Ashby, Robots vs. Fairies

“She belongs with me, not to me.”
Madeline Ashby, vN

“Charlotte leveled him with a glare the likes of which he had never seen in synthetic women. It seemed to penetrate his every cell, as though she were watching him decay one picosecond at a time”
Madeline Ashby, vN
